Trump family hosts ‘Finding Dory’ screening at White House as immigration ban turns to crisis
President Donald Trump reportedly hosted a screening of the movie Finding Dory on Sunday while protests erupted across the world in response to an executive order banning travelers from seven majority-Muslim countries.
Soon after protests broke out over green card holders being detained at U.S. airports on Saturday, the White House released a Sunday schedule which reserved the president’s afternoon for a movie screening.

At 3pm, Trump is hosting a screening of Finding Dory, a movie about what happens when you're separated from your family.
Let that sink in.
